To hell and back: The Bala Murghab saga

An insurgent compound explodes after a Air Force B-1 Lancer drops a 38GBU bomb on the facility in northern Bala Murghab Valley, Badghis province, Afghanistan, April 4, 2011. The B-1 responded as a close-air support asset and assisted 7th Squadron, 10th Cavalry Regiment scouts from Bulldog Troop’s Red Platoon in a sustained combat engagement, which resulted in the destruction of insurgent strongholds and improvised explosive device making facilities.
